Great for 3D Fomies Review by Marc Slack
I have more fun with this comb and a RC Powers Extra 300 than most planes I own. If you haven't tried one it is about time you do. Works best with a 3s 500 to 800 mah Have Fun. (Posted on 3/3/2016)
Disposable Foamie Combo Awesome deal Review by Rick
These are awesome little motors and a great price for the combo. Already had 3 and just bought 3 more. (Posted on 1/21/2016)
Disposable Foamie Combo Awesome deal Review by Rick
I put this on a GWS Beaver, flies great. AUW is 12.75 ounces with a 1000mAh 11.1v lipo. Level flight loops at 1/2 throttle. I wish they would specify slow fly prop, bought APC thin 9x4.7. They are to heavy and overkill for this setup. (Posted on 12/24/2015)
Review by Eric Nelson
dont let the name fool you... this thing rocks my 300 (Posted on 7/19/2011)
Review by katherine benjamin
This motor is great. Quiet and powerful. Im using the setup for my Extra 300 plans I got from Dave's inventory and it works like a charm, it'll get me out of any sticky situation and allows me to do 3D on my foamie like I've never seen before. Really a great motor. Ive crashed many many times with this motor because I do combat flying with my friends and the motor has gone through multiple planes and the only reason I lost it was because I crashed in water and the impact cut some of the copper wires in the motor itself and I'm back buying another. Amazing motor and setup! (Posted on 7/7/2011)
Review by david sutton
I have bought 1 of these for my Extra 300. Ted if you havnt already, get 1. My extra flys like a rocket on this motor with a 3cell and 9x5 prop.
1 thing i did notice, was when mounted the collet that fixes to the fire wall. the motor mounting grub sreews cant be got too. simple fix i re-drilled and threaded them off set to the other holes, Grayson you may want to look at this. But as with all the items from these guy's, fantastic.
Now looking at putting 1 in my 39" wing spane Focker dr1 tri plane. (Posted on 1/13/2011)

Best motor i have in any of my foamies for the price. (Posted on 3/29/2010)
Review by Ted Simmons
I bought this for a foam glider conversion, i was looking for something powerful and most of all cheap. I strapped my 9*3.8 prop onto it and throttled it up and WOW it was powerful and amazingly priced. One thing to expect is that you will need to sauder your connectors to the esc to the motor as well as you will need a battery connector to sauder on too (i used a deans, matched my battery) this company is great and even better is their products (they even sent candy canes) i am looking forward to building the extra 300 with this and hope you enjoy this motor as much as i am.

Review by M.W. Nielsen
Bought this for the DP 300 Extra.. The motor base did require a bit of filing to allow the motor to seat into its firewall base. TONS of power with a 11.1v/1000mah pack... Flew like a dream at 1/2 throttle, long flight times, very pleased. Would definitely purchase this exact set-up again. Going to go with the Grayson park jet set up next for a FFF F22.

Review by Tanvir Syed
I bought this for a extra 300 foam plane i made.

WOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My first rc plane, amazing performance.
I used a 3s 1500mah battery with it and a 9x5 prop.
The 300 plane went was doing vertical climbs SOO MUCH POWER!!!

Amazing for the price.

PS: Disposable???? lol feel free to reuse it on hundreds of planes. (Posted on 6/2/2009)
Review by james GADDIS
I purchased this motor cause it was inexpensive. I was not expecting a motor that was so nice. It out performs motors that are twice as much with No ESC. By far the best money can buy. (Posted on 5/16/2009)
Review by Paul Bowman
It's now April 9th 2009 and this thing is still working great..
It's outlasted several sets of wings and lots of landing gear.

Love it!

Review by Don Melara
I bought this beautiful motor for a 10 ounce Great Planes Foamy and all I can say is that I could have chosen a better motor. with a 9x3.8 prop, 2cell 360mah, I get unlimited vertical on it and I have kept the weight down to an absolute minimum! Thanks to go out to Grayson Hobby for the great products. I highly recommend this motor for any small to midsized parkflyer. (Posted on 2/26/2009)
WOW ! ! I put this combo an a PARK FLYER SLO-V. What a difference. Because of the wing construction on this beginner plane, THROTTLE MANAGEMENT IS A MUST. You will experience wing flutter in a dive. A great deal to repower and upgrad a plane you have grown out of. (Posted on 12/23/2008)
Review by Paul Bowman
Bought this to retrofit an old "Winged Dragon" plane and I gotta tell you, With a 10c 3s lipo pack, it just works great.

Nothing heats up, it just flies and flies.
What a deal!!!

Bought 2, one as a spare.
With as good as this works, I may not need the spare for a long time.

Thanks Grayson Hobby and Dave Powers for suggesting Grayson!
